The report "The impact of good practice policies on regional and global greenhouse gas emissions" by NewClimate Institute, PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis looks at the impact of “good practice” emission reduction policies in nine different areas globally and across six

More jobs, fewer deaths and money saved from fuel imports. That’s what the climate action commitments laid out by the EU, US and China will deliver to their nations, according to a study by NewClimate Institute, and commissioned by Climate Action Network.

This paper assessed Japan’s fair carbon budget consistent with the 2 °C target between 1990 and 2100 under three frequently referred effort-sharing approaches: Converging Per Capita Emissions (CPE); Common but Differentiated Convergence (CDC); and Greenhouse Development Rights (GDRs), as well as the consequent GHG emission pathways up to 2100 fo

This 2013 edition of the global report on Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) by ECN provides up-to-date snapshots and analyses of recent developments in the world of NAMAs.

This Climate Action Tracker update shows that current emissions and policies - and future emission trends - are likely to lead to higher 21st century emission levels than previously projected. This, in turn, implies a higher level of warming by 2100.

Greenhouse gas emissions need to decrease substantially to limit global average temperature to a maximum of 2°C warming above the pre-industrial level in 2100. Emerging economies are of increasing importance in this global effort.

While the official UNFCCC negotiations made some limited progress, encouraging developments on the margins give hope that faster progress is possible.

This new report released at CoP18 in Doha captures snapshot of NAMA development activities around the world and brings insights into the key topics of finance, capacity development and measurement, reporting and verification.

Since the climate negotiations that took place in Copenhagen, in 2009, many countries have submitted quantitative economy-wide greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, proposals, and actions for 2020.

This paper examines the outcomes from Durban by analysing the new negotiating structure set up for the next decade, the prospects from securing a Kyoto arrangement and understanding why the Durban decisions are not sufficient to stay below the 2°C limit stated in the Copenhagen Accord and the Cancun Agreements.
